    If the car is rented from the rental company, the driver would need a travel permit to take the car to another country. A permit to travel across the border is purchased at the rental office when picking up the vehicle. Charge is 75.00 EUR. Road assistance or car replacement while driving abroad is not available. The rates above do not include VAT.

  • The Collision Damage Waiver, or CDW, is an optional coverage product which reduces the customer's financial responsibility in cases of damage to the rental vehicle or fire up to the excess amount. The customer is liable for the full cost of the vehicle if this coverage product is not purchased. A police statement must be presented to the rental company in the event of damage. Without a police report, the client is fully liable for damages. The customer assumes full responsibility if the damage caused is a direct result of an infringement of the highway code. The daily charge and excess amount vary by car class:

    Excess amounts:
    Mini and Economy: 900 EUR
    Compact: 1100 EUR
    Intermediate and Intermediate Estate: 1500 EUR
    Intermediate SUV, Van, Standard and Std. SUV: 1700 EUR
    Full Size and Luxury Vans and SUV: 3500 EUR

    The excess will be charged every time a vehicle is damaged, lost or stolen. Before purchasing CDW, it is advisable to determine if the renter's personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If CDW is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges up to the excess amount and seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. The Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not insurance. For all damages, a police report is required that clearly specifies when and where the damage occurred and under what circumstances. Any non-compliance with the law and other regulations for road traffic safety will void any coverage on the vehicle.
